NEW TRIGGER KIT FOR BODYGUARD 380

It is coming. I have been dealing with a Class 3 manufacturer of aftermarket gun parts for some time. I have a trigger kit from this manufacturer on one of my guns. I do not presently own a Bodyguard. I was told they will soon have a trigger kit for the S&W Bodyguard 380. The kit will shorten the pull to near half of the stock pull length. The break point will be moved forward to near the center of the trigger guard. The release is not expected for a couple of months, but it is coming. I am not releasing the manufacturer's name until they have the product ready for sale. They do not want to be bombarded by questions as to what, how, and when. This is just to let those BG owners know that if you don't like the trigger pull, an option will be avaiable soon.

I don't mind the stock trigger that much. It's much like a revolver trigger and forces me to control the press much like any revolver would. I can understand why people would want a shorter, lighter pull but for me, I've gotten pretty used it. Have about 1.5K through mine and it's getting smooth with use.

what about the whole idea of "don't alter your carry gun?" Seems to be the line that most professional trainers out there are towing. Keeps you safe with the lawyers.

When I first got in to shooting and carrying I was very concerned about what the lawyers thought. Here I am a few years later and I could care less about what the lawyers say. If you want a better trigger, than by all means, install one. If you can't shoot the gun well than you've become a liability. If you can shoot the gun better with an aftermarket trigger than go for it.

Take what I've said with a grain of salt. I have not installed any upgrades to any of my M&P's and don't plan on it for now. Although my Full Size may get an Apex FSS.

Happy Shooting! -Dirvo-

I don't have a problem with the stock trigger but the wife for whom I bought the gun cannot fire it strong hand as she has a ligament injury in that index finger. I would welcome a lighter, shorter pull on my BG380 as otherwise it is a great little gun and I do carry it as a BUG sometimes in concert with it's bigger brother the Shield.

This is a kit to make the trigger pull better. All the stock BG safeties would still be functional. The kit shortens the pull and moves the break point forward. It is not going to make it a "hair" trigger, or a dangerous short pull. If you do not like the BG trigger pull, then you may want to consider this trigger kit. Those that like the trigger pull or are against modifying your gun will not be interested in the kit. The kit consists of new parts to replace the stock parts. By removing the trigger kit parts and reinstalling the original parts, you would return the BG to its original stock condition.
